Islamic militancy are very strong!



By Jahangir Alam Akash, In Bangladesh, most of the political party are using religious in politics. Almost whole system turned to the criminalization, Islamalization, corruption, no accountability, no responsibility, disabled democracy in Bangladesh are burning problems. And gross poverty, natural disaster, climate change, education system, no good plan, no rule of law are the main problem of Bangladesh. War criminals, Jammat and militant are similar. These three components are very danger for secularism. But they are still active in Bangladesh. Dishonesty, immorality, irregularities, irresponsibility, corruption, you can find every where in Bangladesh.
Islamic militant group still are very organized. They have been running arms and explosives training camp. Another terrorists group members are killings in the name of crossfire, encounter or gunfight by the state forces. But, administration hasn’t taking with extra judicial killings to the militants. Yet, hadn’t taken in front of trial to the shelter men (those who were patron to the militants) of militants. Money sources of militants are still hide.
On 25th September, 2009 a militant training centre was captured by the law enforcers from Khagrachhari. (Source: the daily Star, 28th September, 2009). Law enforcers arrested Abdur Rahim alias Saifullah, second-in-command of Chittagong division JMB, and seized powdered explosives, 14 grenade casings, 20 detonators, 49 books on jihad, 27 batteries and around 1 kg barbed wire. Later on 27th September, 2009 they (law enforcers) were arrested four JMB cadres--Delwar Hossain alias Sajib, 32, and Yunus Ali alias Yunus, 20, at Shantipur of Matiranga, Delwar Hossain Dulal, 23, in Gazipur and Monir alias Ripon, 25, in Comilla.
Government source told, Moulana Saidur Rahman's son Bashar plays a key role in running the organisation. Seven members of Shura, highest policymaking body, are Shiblu alias Shishir, Sohel Mahfuz of Kushtia, Mehedi alias Abir of Barguna, Nazmul alias Bhagne Shahid of Natore, Osman alias Shahid of Comilla, Sayeem of Dhaka and Mahmud alias Asad of Panchagarh. Of them, Shishir is in charge of the military wing, Sohel Mahfuz dawat (invitation) department, Mehedi southern districts, Nazmul northern region, Osman Chittagong division and Sayeem takes care of the IT wing. The duties assigned to Mahmud could not yet be known. Mostafiz alias Siddique of Gazipur works as an adviser to the banned outfit.
A government source said, still Islamic militancy network and their organisational activity are very strong in Bangladesh.

Previous report: ‘Waiting for peace and justice!’ Around 125 Islamic militant organizations are active in Bangladesh. But the government has declared banned only for four militant organizations, till to date. The life of present highly popular Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is under threat by the militant. She is the main target of Islamic militant.

The people are well known, BNP-Jammat alliance government was patronized to the Islamic militant. Democracy, militancy and islamizations are now similar in Bangladesh. In top of the state were put Islam as a state religious. Although the peoples of Bangladesh were gave gross sacrifice for a secular democratic and peaceful country. But, in practice the peoples haven’t yet get a good democracy, rule of law, good governance and a secular society. At about 90 percent peoples are Muslim in Bangladesh. Other 10 percents are belonging in Hindu, Christian and Buddhist.
On the other hand, main two political parties of Bangladesh Awami League and BNP have no democracy in practically. In last general election which was hold on 29th December, 2008 in Bangladesh. In that election, peoples were gave absolute majority to Bangladesh Awami League (BAL) led grand alliance called Mohajote. Actually, which was not won of BAL. It’s a real and experienced result or decisions which were taken by the peoples after seven years regime both BNP-Jamat and Dr. Fakruddin-Moyeen government.

Peoples of Bangladesh have had great hope for their demand/want to the present government for trial of war criminals, Bangabondhu murderers and re-established to the constitution of 1972. But, the government couldn’t show any activity regarding these issues from last eight months that’s for peoples are get hope or faith. Now a days in Bangladesh Islamic militant are grown up, law and order situation are fallen every day and the conspiracy are grosses day by day against the daughter of Bangabondhu and present Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The influential English national daily Star recently wrote that, ‘no effective measure was taken by any government to punish the patrons of the outlawed Islamist outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) that launched an unprecedented countrywide bomb attack on August 17, 2005.
The law-enforcement agencies during their drives against militancy have so far arrested over 550 JMB militants including many of their top tier leaders. However, no initiative by the law enforcers was ever seen to bring the patrons of these militants to book. A number of victims in northern Rajshahi region individually filed cases against some alleged patrons of JMB. But no comprehensive effort has been seen from the government to take steps against these alleged patrons. Former BNP minister Aminul Haque has been convicted by a court for patronizing JMB and some other BNP leaders have been accused in cases filed by victims in Rajshahi region.

Following the March 2007 execution of JMB kingpins Abdur Rahman, Siddiqul Islam alias Bangla Bhai and four others, the government showed its firm stance to detect the outfit’s political patrons and take stern action against them. The patrons of JMB would face the same punishment [execution] if they are found guilty, announced the then law adviser of the caretaker government.
“The law enforcers are looking for the godfathers. If they are netted and we learn about their roles, they will face the same punishment,” he said in March 2007. It has already been over two years when present Inspector General of Police (IGP) Nur Mohammad said: “We have already tentatively identified the patrons of the organization [JMB].”

The ruling Awami League government also announced to take actions against the militant patrons. Mysteriously enough, no action has been taken against anyone although names of some former BNP-Jamaat-led ruling alliance’s political leaders, lawmakers and ministers surfaced as patrons of JMB in the northern districts including Rajshahi. The investigators working at the diktat of the then government high-ups also did not take any move to detect and expose them.
Here mentioned that, at least 176 peoples were killed including journalist, lawyer, justice and political leader from since 1999 by the Islamic militant attacked in Bangladesh. As citizens we think that, it would not be possible to uproot militancy soon until taking measures against their patrons or guardians as well as should stop their economic shelters. As well as should practice real democracy and for the interest of the nation should be united all political parties except Jammat. We more think that, immediately should ban the politics those who are working in the field of politics in the name of religious, like Jammat.

The influential English national daily from Bangladesh daily Star wrote that, No effective measure was taken by any government to punish the patrons of the outlawed Islamist outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) that launched an unprecedented countrywide bomb attack on August 17, 2005.

The investigators working at the diktat of the then government high-ups also did not take any move to detect and expose them.

The JMB has meanwhile been trying to regroup to regain its strength. Moreover, the outfit is being united with another banned Islamist outfit Harkat-ul-Jihad-al Islami’s (Huji) Bangladesh chapter despite having some differences of opinion. Sources say under the initiative of present JMB chief Moulana Saidur Rahman and Huji leader Omar the two outfits have recently held several meetings to discuss their unity move. Sources inside RAB, which is leading the anti-militant drive for last few years, say they did not yet infiltrate into the militant organizations. “If we could plant our sources in the militant outfits, we could have learned their every update soon after the development. And as we couldn’t do it yet, we now operate drives based mainly on the information we obtain from the arrested militants,” says a government officials.

The sources say both JMB and Huji are divided into various groups due to internal feuds. But yet they have initiated the unity move to take revenge on the government for the execution of six JMB leaders and also the arrest of the leaders and activists of both the organizations. The sources add the JMB and Huji leaders have past relations as executed JMB chief Abdur Rahman formed his outfit in 1998 after defecting from Huji.

Former adviser to the caretaker government and former IGP SM Shajahan said, “We have significant achievement in anti-militant drive, but militancy is not a small problem. It should not be considered that militancy has been solved after arresting and executing some of their leaders and members.” He said before the blasts on August 17, 2005 the country had witnessed some other major blasts. “But we saw blame games in the political arena and misleading investigation to divert our eyes from the real focus, which inspired the real culprits. ”It was unexpected and no politics should be on the issue as we need united efforts involving people to solve this serious problem,” he continued. “The total picture of the country’s militancy problem is not clear yet as we don’t know their many things including sources of money, arms, explosives and training. We think executed Abdur Rahman and Bangla Bhai are top most leaders of JMB, but I think they can have their patrons.”

Government sources told, some law enforcers involved with the anti-militant drives believe the “Anti-Terrorism Law”, which has already been passed would help take legal steps against the masterminds and patrons. They think earlier there was no adequate law to bring the patrons or masterminds to book. Sources say the law-enforcement and intelligence personnel arrested 555 JMB leaders since the August 17 blasts. Of them, 80 were arrested this year. Among the arrested JMB men, 46 are policymakers, 103 ehsar [full-time] members, 10 gaiyeri ehsar members, 17 suicide squad members and 379 are lower level leaders and activists. The sources say government law enforcer’s agencies detained around 1,500 people suspecting them as JMB men. But after verification, only 555 of them were learned to have had links with JMB. Among the arrestees, six top brass leaders — Abdur Rahman, Bangla Bhai, Abdul Auwal, Ataur Rahman Sunny, Khalid Saifullah and Iftekhar Hussain Al Mamun were executed.

Two major political parties–Awami League (AL) and BNP — are not fostering intra-party democracy, which is an imperative to strengthen country’s democracy, speakers at a round-table in the capital said on 16 August, 2009.
They accused ruling AL-led government of turning the Election Commission (EC) into a ‘paper tiger’. Sushasoner Jonno Nagorik (Sujan) organised the event titled “Reforms in the political party: Where we are” at the National Press Club. On the much-talked-about political reforms, speakers said the issue drew huge public response during the tenure of the last caretaker government but they lost interest as soon as the then government adopted the ‘minus two formula’.
They also apprehend that militancy will rise in the country if democracy does not prevail. Sujan Secretary placed the concept paper at the discussion. Speakers told, We don’t see any reflection of intra-party democracy in the political parties; we won’t be able to establish a digital Bangladesh unless we ensure a democratic environment, speakers appreciated ‘aggressive activities’ of the parliamentary standing committees saying that it would help ensure accountability and transparency of the respective ministries. The speakers also raised a question about why BNP failed to hold its council within the EC’s timeframe. They should honour what they promised to the EC. Income and expense of AL should have been discussed at their recently held council. But we don’t know whether it was discussed in the council or not. We don’t see financial accountability established in the political parties. Militancy will rise in the country in the absence of democracy in the country. The meeting said, the ninth parliament had deleted and relaxed many provisions from the Representation of the People Order, which could have ensured intra-party democracy. Thus an elected government turned the EC into a ‘paper tiger’, he said.
Speakers also said the just-concluded council of AL and Jatiya Party were nothing but some formalities, which failed to uphold the spirit of the Representation of the People Order. They have completely failed to come out of the previous political culture,” he commented. We utter so many good words while in opposition but forget those once we are in power. (Source: the daily Star).
Here mentioned that, at least 176 peoples were killed including journalist, lawyer, justice and political leader from since 1999 by the Islamic militant attacked in Bangladesh.

As citizens we think that, it would not be possible to uproot militancy soon until taking measures against their patrons or guardians. As well as should practice real democracy and for the interest of the nation should be united whole political party. We more think that, immediately should ban the politics those who are working in the field of politics in the name of religious. 17-08-2009
Finally, We want war criminals free, Jammat-shibir free, corruption free, torture free secular Bangladesh, where live all religious believer with peace, happiness and with actual democracy. www.humanrightstoday.info
